Access to information - Policy Statements
Many blind and partially sighted people do not have access to information that sighted people rely on everyday despite provisions in the Equality Act 2010. Information on health care, in shops and on buses continue to pose a challenge.
Everyone has the right to access information in their preferred format whether that is large print, audio, daisy or Braille. Often service providers want to give this information but are unclear on the practicalities. We believe information is power but far too often blind and partially sighted people aren't being given information they can read.
